Fassett of l-3iiosburRh and Casslus Peck of this city, met ut the university yesterday morning anil again lust evening and discussed plans In teganl to the erection of Morrill hall on tho site recently purchased from John J. Allen and iilso the use by the university of tho increased ap propriation allowed tho agricultural colli ge by tho recent law enacted by 'oiigress. In regard to the llrst of these mat ters It was decided to begin operations upon tho erection of Morrill hall at mice. The. Initial woi-k to bo donn will In) the removal of tho old Allen house, irom Its present location at the cor ner, of I'liiverslty pi, ton und Main sired, farther east and on tho same shlo of tho Willistoti road, where It will bo left nearly opposite tho new weather bureau .station of tlio Pulled State.'! bureau of agriculture. Morrill hall will be erected on the grounds of the Allen lot, fronting up on Fnlverslty place about In lino with the ftnutage of the gymnasium. This will bring the front of thu hall about where the rear of the Allen house now stands and will leave ample grounds for a lawn between the hall and t'nl verslly place. Tho work of removing tho old house to Its new location will bo started ut once, a bid having already been made by a local man. Tho house will be lilted up und used, in all probability, for a dormitory of some, sort, probably, for the farm-hands employed at the experiment farm. There was conslderablo discussion by the members of tho board concern ing various details in regard to tho erection of the new building. Among these was the question of whether Un building would be of brick, granite op marble. No definite decision was reaeheil. Illds fur tho erection of the hall have not y.-t been called for, but will probable be in tlio near future, so that work on tin hall may commence very soon alter tin- removal of the obi build ing. Tho dimi nsions and oth'i. mat ters already decided, have been stated In the Free Press. Nothing dclinito was decided regard ing the disposal ot the Increased ap propriation allowed the agricultural experiment station. one minus con sidered, and ono wbh-h will probably be can led out and will lake up the lnciciisid appropratlon to some extent, was tho inaugurating of a census of the orcharding of the entire State.
